ingredients

directions

  • Cut broccoli and cauliflower into florets, discarding outer leaves and stems.
  • You should have about 8 cups broccoli florets and 4 cups cauliflower.
  • In a large pot, bring 8 cups of lightly salted water to a boil.
  • Add cauliflower; cook 2 minutes.
  • Add broccoli; cook an additional 6 minutes or until vegetables are crisp tender. Drain.
  • While vegetables are cooking, make Cheese Sauce:

  • In a medium-size saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook 1 minute.
  • Gradually whisk in the milk; continue to whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in cheese, mustard, chiles, hot-pepper sauce and salt.
  • Stir until smooth. If a thinner sauce is desired, stir in a few more tablespoons of milk.
  • To serve, place vegetables in large serving dish and pour cheese sauce over the top. Serve immediately.
  • Do Ahead: Cook vegetables, rinse under cold water to stop cooking. Drain and refrigerate. Prepare sauce; let cool, then cover and refrigerate up to a day ahead.
  • To serve, uncover; remove from refrigerator and let stand 30 minutes.
  • Reheat separately in microwave oven (adding more milk to sauce as needed).

    I brought this dish to a friends house for dinner, because she has a veggie picky son and a veggie picky husband. I left out the hot sauce to make it more kid friendly. We were all happy with the result - very tasty!

    We loved this! The cheese sauce gives a nice zip to the veggies, especially the green chilies and pepper sauce. Love the fact that this can be made ahead of time too. Another great recipe, Shanna Bennett.
